Event: Spend the Summer with the Independent Shakespeare Company in Griffith Park

June 4th, 2014 Comments off

We have been enjoying the free Shakespeare in Griffith Park by The Independent Shakespeare Company  for several years now. We have seen The Winter’s Tale, The Merry Wives of Windsor, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Much Ado About Nothing. The Independent Shakespeare Company always puts on an excellent and entertaining show, especially on lovely Summer nights under the star (and often with the coyotes calling from the surrounding hills.)

2014 Productions

Taming shrew

Griffith Park Free Shakespeare Festival returns on Thursday, June 26 with:

  • New productions of Twelfth Night and The Taming of the Shrew
  • Players in the Park/Teatristas en el parque family workshops
  • The Salon Series, discussions at the intersection of Shakespeare and contemporary culture
  • Festival Arts Partners, pre-show performances by a cross section of Los Angeles performing artists
  • An evening of Shakespeare and music produced in association with Symphony In The Glen.

Why not join us in seeing these shows this Summer? No tickets (or money) required (although tips are gratefully accepted to fund the company). Bring your chairs and your dinner. Come early and enjoy the sunset and a great show. I know we’ll be there.

Video: Lake Balboa Cherry Blossoms 2014 – A Video Montage

March 25th, 2014 Comments off

As I do each year, I took some time to visit nearby Lake Balboa Park today to see the Japanese Cherry trees that bloom around the lake each year. We are in a drought year, so the bloom is not as vibrant has it has been in the past, but there was still many blossoms to photograph and video. Here are a video montage from this year’s trip.
